Thank you for tuning in! Our 6th grade class was tasked with the following essential question: What kind of power and purpose do stories hold.
Read more about their project here:
In groups of two or three, students will dive into answering the essential question in English Language Arts (ELA), History, Life Sciences, and Project-Based Learning (PBL) class. Assuming the role of digital media specialists, they will engage in research on social or environmental issues to prepare a call to action. By writing scripts and producing podcast episodes that use persuasive techniques, students will inevitably enact change. The ELA class will be trained in basic speech preparation and effective speech delivery through IEW’s Speech Bootcamp, while History and Life Sciences will focus on past and current social/environmental matters. Furthermore, PBL will offer class time for collaboration.
Check back on the HOPE Academy blog starting this Tuesday and each Tuesday for the next few weeks to hear our 6th grade student podcast.
